    I went for trad english ale, though I also like golden ales, bitter, mild and stout (proper stout, none of this tasteless "English Guinness" stuff)

    Surprised to see so many ale/stout drinkers! Thought I was way out of my generation guzzling the stuff "like an old man"!

    It depends on the occasion. I most enjoy belgium abbey ales but I only drink them when celebrating or happen to making an outing to a well-stocked pub. Otherwise I just drink pale lagers as session beers - I find the snobbish talk about them gets carried away.

    Belgian Abbey Ales are great, although unfortunately generally extortionately expensive in this country. I find Czech Lagers, German Weissbiers, and English hoppy golden Ales the most enjoyable session beers.

    However I will often end up drinking standard commercial lagers like Carling or Amstel if they're on offer and I'm not feeling particularly flush or nothing better is available. At the end of the day, beer is still beer and its still the greatest drink ever invented.

    A few are available on amazon as boxes of 24 for <£3 a bottle - always worth having some in reserve should an occasion come up!

    I'm curious - to those who chose commercial lager, is it because you actually prefer the taste of it? Or is it because its the cheapest and most widely available? Is it the only thing you've only really ever been exposed to? Would you drink something else if you could afford to?

    Love a bit of everything really. IPA's are nice and I enjoy my brown ale's too. Most on-tap bar beer's are alright but I love Blue Moon. Hobgoblin as posted in this thread is very nice too! I always find myself grabbing a few craft-beers when I can when I am at my local beer store. Pumpkin ale is coming too, it's this time of season where I will start drinking it so I'm going to get my hands on a few bottles. Duvel is excellent, probably my favourite beer.

    In general, bitter because you can't go far wrong. Then there are a few proper ales I like: Sharp's Doombar, Abbot Ale and Worthington's White Shield. But if you're in a random bar, I find you can't go far wrong with a pint of IPA. As long as it isn't a summer IPA. Summer Ale's(in general) tend to be vile.

    This poll is a shambles, traditional ale all the way.

    The Goblin gets a special mention, along with Punk for their kickass blurb:

    Got lead to this thread, I've gone for stouts and porters. I really can't think of anything that beats a full bodied stout or porter on a cold Winter's day, the bigger the nose on it the better, chocolate malts, cocoa, plenty of roast, yummm Buxton - Dark Night is one to try for any stout/porter lover, superb stuff.

    I don't mean to sound like an alcoholic but I enjoy my BIG flavoured lighter beers that are above the 5% mark, Double IPAs, IPAs.

    I just generally enjoy big flavours, big on the nose, a head that doesn't disappear instantly and a beer that isn't heavily carbonated. If I'm generally drinking rubbish bland golden ales and bitters I tend to get through them quickly and move on, that said if I'm drinking something too nice, I neck them haha and have another!

    Not had it, generally drink cask but if I see a bottle will have it. Drinking in Wetherspoons means cask can often be as cheap/cheaper as/than buying bottled!

    I like non-hoppy ales the most. I guess that would come under "Traditional Strong English Ales", although I'm not entirely sure what the difference is between those and bitters. I also like the darker beers/milds I've tried, but I've had nowhere near enough to call them a favourite type.

    like more malty ales, or the fruity, floral variety?
